Alex Ferguson print run hits one million

Hodder has now printed more than 1m copies of Sir Alex Ferguson's memoir, My Autobiography.

My Autobiography has sold 218,285 copies in the UK through Nielsen BookScan's TCM since its release on 13th October, and has been number one in the UK, South Africa and Ireland, as well as the number one English book in China.

Production has taken place at six different printers around the world. The next printing of the book will use just red top and tail bands on the jacket, after previous printings exhausted supplies of other inks, following red and white, red and black, and red and grey editions.

Hodder and Headline c.e.o. Jamie Hodder Williams said the printing had been "an incredible production feat".

The former Manchester United manager is currently on a sold-out nationwide tour, finishing in Preston on 28th November.
